The Southern Program Alliance (SPA) comprising partners Lendlease, Acciona, Coleman Rail, WSP and MTM, forms part of the Victorian Government’s $8.3 billion program of works for the Level Crossing Removal Project. SPA involves an initial works package valued at $588m that will see the removal of various dangerous level crossings in the Mornington Peninsula area. The project is growing in scope significantly, now involving additional works packages taking the overall project value to $1.2b. The project will improve safety by separating trains from traffic and reduce congestion, providing an upgraded road network and modern new train stations. The program will also connect communities and support urban regeneration. MBB Consulting were invited to provide services shortly after the project was awarded in late-2017. Working for Alliance partners Lendlease and Acciona, our initial engagement was to provide procurement setup services in support of the initial works package. The scope of services we provide has since grown considerably, our consultants at SPA provide a range of services to the Alliance including delivery and construction planning, project controls, commercial management, cost planning and financial reporting.
